Sir George's Apple Fritters

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Recipe Baroness

I had these at a restaurant in Greenville called Sir George's, when I was a kid, and had such a fit over them the chef gave my mother the recipe. It's supposedly from a 15th Century recipe. All I know is they are fantastic! Serve them as a dessert or side with your Pork!

These are wonderful. the batter just is heavenly and light. I sprinkled some cinnamon over them as well.
